I sing, I play a number of musical instruments badly. I love to knit; been knitting for 35 years and I’m 42 (thanks, Grammy). I adore Ravelry in so many ways and I love meeting new people. Am thinking of dipping my toe into the knit design pool AND the knit podcast pool.I crochet as well, tho’ not as much as knitting. I’m famous for having too many irons in the fire.
I love to laugh and read and learn and teach and talk and eat and garden and drink tea and travel and procrastinate and give gifts and be silly and write and worship God and make the world a better place. I suck at house work, but that’s OK because I’m not a housewife – I can guarantee you that I have NEVER married a house. I’m a member of Baha’i Faith – if’n ya don’t know about it, I think you should check it out; it’s verra cool! I love to talk about that too.
I love swapping – I love the challenge of making something for someone I don’t know (and hopefully they will love it)- I love gaining friends all over the place, and of course seeing what they’ve made for me. I’m out of the habit of it now, but I hope to return to it soon. It’s so much fun.
Grew up way up north; live way down south and love it. Married for 23 years to an engineer; we disagree about many, many things but we still love each other and laugh together. We have 3 chilluns – 2 sons, 22 & 16 and 1 daughter 13. I’m currently homeschooling the youngest; of course I taught all 3 of them to knit I have 2 dogs, Boris & Natasha, and 1 very soft, fluffy cat, Kali.
I have been on a yarn diet for most of 2011 and surprisingly I have been quite faithful to it. In 2010, my already sizeable stash doubled in size – hence the yarn diet. It’s funny because most of the stash is stuck in the garage (long story – won’t bore you) and still I have plenty to knit with. :o)
I’ve worked as a radio announcer/dj/engineer off and on for 25 years. I currently have a weekly radio program that you can listen to online if you wish. It’s every Thursday night from 6:30 – 8 pm (US Central time) on WJAB. I play classic Blues.From 6 to 6:30 is a legal call in show that I usually just engineer, but occasionally co-host, called Common Law; a local lawyer answers legal questions from callers. It sounds dry as dust, but it’s one of my favorite programs I’ve ever worked on because the lawyer is GREAT.
Oh yeah, I have size 11 feet, so sock knitting for myself takes a while….
